May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2018/19) there are twenty three children in the class and they are taught by Mrs Tyler (class teacher), Mrs Connelly (teaching assistant) and Mrs Lynne Heron (teaching assistant).

The younger children (Reception) follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning:-

-Communication and language

-Physical development

-Personal, social and emotional development

-Literacy

-Mathematics

-Understanding the world

-Expressive art and design

The curriculum is very play based with the children taking a lead in their learning, supported by the adults. They are encouraged to use a wide range of resources in both the inside and outside areas. Continuous assessment enables the staff to judge when the children are ready for more formal learning.

In Years 1 and 2 the children follow the National Curriculum through termly topics which enable the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge in a stimulating, creative and fun way.

In terms 1 and 2 May Hill will be going back in time as we find out about schools in the past. We will interview our families and also become Victorian school children when we visit the Dean Heritage Museum. We will be finding out about our local hero Dick whittington and sorting fact from fiction. In art and d.t. we will be producing models, making samplers and lino prints. In term 6 we will be welcoming the September intake as they join us on Thursday mornings.

Remember to look at the photos on our topic board in the corridor to see how busy we are.
